Scabiosa, Summer Berries is rated out of 5 by 4.Rated 1 out of 5 by Cantusenicknametwice from Invisible Plants This looks like it would be a great flower, but I've bought the seeds twice, sowed them, and have never seen even seedlings. I thought I did it this year, because plants did grow. My mistake, the plants were a wildflower grown last year that's showing up in other containers this year. Now those flowers? Wish I knew their name, because they're easy to grow. I've concluded scabiosa seeds aren't worth buying. They might be, if they actually grew.Date published: 2011-07-03Rated 5 out of 5 by Lisa84 from So far, so good! Fast germination! I only planted these seeds (indoors) on Friday. It is now Wednesday and already I can see little green sprouts coming up! Can't wait to see what these become. I'll keep you posted!Date published: 2011-03-03Rated 5 out of 5 by 4thebirds from Inspiring! I loved my scabiosa last year. The colors of both bud and blossom are beautiful. They make excellent, long lasting cut flowers and their long stems allow them to sit tall above other blossoms for a dramatic show. I put several blossoms and buds along with some blades of purple fountain grass in a tall amethyst colored vase and it made a spectacular and sophisticated arrangement. This flower will be a staple in my garden from now on.Date published: 2009-05-22Rated 1 out of 5 by GardenGirl88 from Not Even a Sprout I tried these for the first time last year and was very disappointed in the result. I didn't even get 1 sprout or seedling from the 12 seeds I planted. The surrounding cosmos, bachelor buttons and African daisies did fabulous, but no scabiosas. I have a few leftover seeds, and I will try them in a different location to see if that makes any difference. I love the colors in the photos, so I hope I get to see at least some of them this year!Date published: 2009-01-20
